Want more history of Lewis Cohen? Lewis Cohen initially founded LI Cohen Stationery Store. He printed his first deck of cards in NY in 1832. He developed and patented a four color card printing process which allowed him to grow and prosper while focusing primarily on playing cards. He shared the patent with three relatives who grew firms all of which were consolidated into one much larger firm: the New York Consolidated Card Company. NYCC published from 1871 to 1894 as an independent firm. They were acquired by USPC in 1894 and remained an independent subsidiary until 1930 when they became Consolididated Dougherty.
